‘Provides a platform for many talented amateur musicians and verse speakers of all ages and abilities. It gives the stimulus of preparing for a public occasion and an opportunity to listen and learn from the performances of others. As important is the constructive criticism, help and advice given by experienced adjudicators, which helps the competitors improve their respective skills. The Festival is held in March each year. In Festival week classes run from 9.30am to 9.30pm, with morning, afternoon and evening sessions ... A gala concert takes place at the end of the week, on the Saturday at 7pm, celebrating the highlights of the week’s performances.‘

‘We aim to be the most entertaining male voice choir in the South West and for the City of Truro to be proud of us. The ethos of the choir is to have fun and enjoy singing. Each year we host a visiting choir and also spend a weekend away ... Singing is all about team work, not only within each section of the choir, but as a complete unit. All backgrounds are catered for; we offer a friendly and very sociable atmosphere and many life long friendships are made.‘

‘Established in January 2001, as part of a major new initiative to boost singing in Cornish Primary Schools ... The choir stems from a partnership between Truro Cathedral and the Cornwall Music Service Department and comprises children from all over Cornwall. The project came about following a radical decision to use the musical resources of the Cathedral, in the form of its choristers, to help bring singing back into the community’s primary schools. The Junior Choir was then set up to give those youngsters wanting to take their singing further a vehicle to enable them to do so.‘

‘Cornwall’s premier string orchestra ...  Apart from playing for enjoyment, the orchestra raises money for charity by giving a series of concerts of classical music every year ... The kind of player we are looking for will be roughly of Grade 8 standard or have comparable orchestral experience. We do not audition in the formal sense, but ask any prospective member to come along to a couple of rehearsals to play next to the section leader who can then make a decision.’

New players are welcome - our membership includes both experienced players and the less so, although not absolute beginners. There are no auditions or any criteria for people to join ... We put on two or three concerts each year at local churches, and they ask us back, so that's a good sign.’

'Truro Cathedral is truly a centre of musical excellence. We have developed one of the best choirs in the country, far better than could be expected from a "small" Cathedral and the envy of some of the more famous foundations. Our reputation for excellence is further enhanced by the legendary quality of our Father Willis organ, which often attracts world-class recitalists who would not otherwise visit Cornwall. As a result, congregations and concertgoers in Truro can enjoy the very best in Cathedral music ... A varied concerts and events programme by carefully selected "outside" groups, means that we are one of the most interesting and rewarding music venues in Cornwall.'
